I've always enjoyed the Andrew Sisters (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wiVkdVPGoY) kind of music and only just realized I have been living under a rock and found Christina Aguilera's Candyman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hYGp5VdYbE) and have refallen in love with this kind of music.
I am very open to suggestions from old stuff to brand spanking new stuff.

For instrumental Gypsy jazz, investigate Django Reinhardt & Stéphane Grappelli (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpmOTGungnA)--& their followers.
They formed the Quintette du Hot Club de France (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quintette_du_Hot_Club_de_France) in the 30's & their music has influenced many. Django died in the 50's but Stephane kept playing to the end of his very long life. Did some fine work with David Grisman.
